Serena Williams’ Classic, Chic Look at the Met Gala

Unilever Celebrity Hairstylist Ursula Stephen gives a breakdown of how she styled Serena Williams' hair for the 2017 Met Gala, using the Dyson Supersonic.

“Serena was wearing a classic tonight... Versace! When I saw the sketch, I thought it was so glamorous, and I wanted to make sure her hair didn’t compete with her stunning dress or jewelry. I wanted to push the bar with Serena, but I also wanted her to feel comfortable and gorgeous by giving her a classic, yet chic look to compliment her gown.”

  1. To prep, I ran my fingers through Serena’s hair using Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Volumizing Weightless Blow Dry Spray and began blow drying using the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer to prevent heat damage and protect natural shine.
  2. Once her hair was completely dry, I used a flat iron to make her hair pin-straight, curving the iron to flip it out slightly at the ends.
  3. Next, I brushed her hair back and spritzed it with Dove Style+Care Non-Aerosol Extra Hold Hairspray to enhance her hair’s natural shine. If needed, you can secure the hair behind the ear using bobby pins to avoid any movement.
  4. I finished the look by applying Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Spray throughout her hair along with a light pomade to her ends for long-lasting hold.
